Vegetable soup at its finest – Creamy Cauliflower Soup with lots of Roasted Garlic. A dreamy, creamy soup that is perfect for a cool fall night!
Because let’s be real for just a second here… It’s officially fall meaning that while the leaves are turning their beautiful deep burnt oranges, mustardy yellows, rusty reds and dusty browns I will be wrapped in only my warmest of socks and sweaters because it sure is getting chilly out there.
There is nothing quite like a cool fall night that reminds you that you absolutely need to invest in more wool socks and gets you craving a warm, steamy bowl of soup… soup that is probably of the cauliflower kind and has a touch of that super rich, super delicious roasted garlic taste and that is super easy to make and pretty much super healthy and good for you to boot.
I kind of really like soup.
Soup is probably my most favourite food (well, along with cookies and cheese and coffee and chocolate) in the entire world right now. Which may seem like an entirely ridiculously vague thing to say and kind of a weird nondescript thing to claim as my very fav but that is exactly why I love soup. Any kind. Any flavour.
Because what is not to love?!?
Soup – it is so simple, so versatile, so wholesome, so nourishing. Thickened or thin. Pureed ‘til silky smooth or left in its hearty form. Loaded with lots of vegetables or just focused on a single one. Hot or cold. A simple side dish or the main attraction. The beauty of soup is that it can be anything you want it to be. And that’s why I love love loooooove it.
And today I choose Creamy Cauliflower Soup, heavy on the roasted garlic.
I roasted a whole head of cauliflower with onions and garlic, seasoned it with some herbs then pureed everything to a smooth and silky bowl of goodness. (Gluten free goodness, I might add.) Roasting everything together in the oven beforehand gives this soup such wonderful flavour.
It is so easy, so delicious and truly a great side dish to accompany any dinner idea.
You guys!! You should probably make this for dinner tonight!!
